Statewide Iowa — Another Democrat intends to seek their party’s U.S. Senate nomination and the chance to challenge Republican incumbent Chuck Grassley in 2022.
Minden City Councilman Glenn Hurst is a physician who also chairs the party’s Rural Caucus. Hurst says Democrats can win over rural voters.
Hurst, who specializes in general and family medicine, works in Minden and two other clinics in western Iowa. He says health care access is a key issue.
Former Congresswoman Abby Finkenauer of Cedar Rapids and former Crawford County Supervisor Dave Muhlbauer are also planning to run in the Democratic Primary. Grassley has said he’ll announce this fall if he plans to run for an eighth term.
